Last year’s COVID-19 pandemic forced us to look at life – and ourselves – with fresh perspective. For some of us, prolonged downtime and navigating new video platforms for work or pleasure revealed physical traits that we had never seen before (and did not necessarily like).
But with a light at the end of the tunnel, there is no reason to put off cosmetic improvements that would make you look and feel better about yourself. If you are eager to return to a sense of normalcy as an improved version of yourself, consider a post-lockdown makeover.
Plastic surgeons like Dr. Carlos Chacon are seeing mounting requests from patients who want to put their best face and body forward as the world opens up and travel, work meetings and in-person events resume.
Here, Dr. Chacon outlines some of the procedures that are most popular among people seeking a post-COVID makeover.
As masks and face coverings fall away, many people are anxious to rejuvenate their facial features with surgical and non-surgical treatments.
Facelift was a top procedure in 2020 and continues to be popular in 2021, thanks to the procedure’s ability to revitalize a slackened jawline and soften deep crevices (e.g., nasolabial folds, marionette lines). Eyelid surgery is in high demand to freshen droopy or puffy lids, and interest in rhinoplasty also grew (perhaps inspired by the “Zoom Boom”).
Botox and fillers, mainstays during normal years, are oft-requested to minimize facial wrinkles and folds. Who among us hasn’t noticed a few new wrinkles or furrows after the uncertainty and stress of last year?
Body and Breast Procedures
Dr. Chacon has also noted an uptick in patients requesting body and breast enhancement as the world opens up.
Many tummy tuck, liposuction and breast augmentation candidates describe a desire to unveil a new look for their post-quarantine summer getaways or socializing. Others want to tighten up their physiques after fluctuating in weight during quarantine, or hope to treat themselves to a procedure they have always wanted after a particularly difficult year.
